About The Episode

A Rountable Review of 2010

Departing from the shows regular format, host Bryant Gumbel leads correspondents Mary Carillo, Frank Deford, Jon Frankel, Bernard Goldberg and Andrea Kremer in a spirited roundtable discussion of 2010, touching on everything from favorite stories of the year to the interviews and pieces that had the greatest impact on them.

Segments covered include: the exclusive TV report demonstrating the link between brain injuries and the onset of ALS; the stories of three transgender sportswriters and the tragic consequences for one of them; the bizarre and largely unknown world of womens bodybuilding; the inspiring story of the young kings and queens of chess from the border town of Brownsville, Tex.; and the examination of the stringent Olympic drug testing process prior to the Vancouver Winter Olympics in February. Individuals profiled on REAL SPORTS this year who will be revisited include: Marc Buoniconti, Erik Compton, Gareth Thomas, Pete Carroll, Lane Kiffin, Mike May and the late Arturo Gatti.
